Forum: GratefulDead Subject: birfday to Keith!

Today would have been Keith Godchaux's 59th birthday, had he not died tragically in '79. Maybe find yourself a show where he's quite prominent & toast the man with your toastable of choice. Incase you want to be lazy about finding a show, here's the Boston Music Hall, 12/1/71. I've been enjoying TIFTOO for more than 16 years from an old tape & here @ the LMA---Keith is featured nicely in this mix. AND...this is one of my my fav performances of the suite. I hope someone enjoys it as much as I have/do.

I was curious what the first show after Keith died was like. Appropriately they played He's Gone. The CC>China>Rider is outstanding.

This version is a little on the high side, but I think I prefer it (set 2 recording is markedly better than set 1):

Oh yeah, and BryanE's story in the comments is pretty amusing. $50 today would be a great find, in 1980 you must have had quite the feast.

Sometimes I look @ Keith and say to myself "what's she doing with him?" She's a FOX!!! Boy...I just realized I've not used that word in a LONG, LONG time---we need to bring that word back. VIVA FOXEY LADY!!! But she was pretty uber hot, wasn't she? I remember looking at the little booklet of photos from Europe '72 & the picture of here where she's looking up into the sky with a big smile on here face, & I wanted desperately to do some nasty things with/to her. Some of those other photos from the 70's with those tight hip hugging jeans she wore made MY pants tight.

Oh, I forgot this was about Keith. He wasn't as pretty as his wife, but I'm still amazed listening to 10/26/71 right now, at how he was able to swing with the GD right out of the gate. And I have always prefered the piano sounds rather than organs & electronic keyboards. Not to dis GOP's preference for Pig's B3, because there was nothing like Pigpen's singing, organ & harmonica playing, but again, just my own opinion on flavors.

Creepy. I was just queing up 12/2/71. Love both of these shows. Spaced on Keith's b-day. Excellent choice for a memorial.

Okay, okay----it's before 1972, so I take it back.

Much synchronicity around here today. I listened to this show two days ago, and Keith is indeed prominent in the mix. I was amazed at how quickly he fit into the band.

I just DL'd 10/26/71 from iTUNES---the Palestra in Rochester, NY, and Keith is in the mix very nicely. He's playing a B3 on a couple of songs & piano on most others---both played with aplomb.

I also dig his chops for the simple reason that he & I share the name Keith. I can still after almost 36 years only count on 2 hands how many other people named Keith that I've either met or talked to on the phone @ my sales job.

Yea man I'm a nerd...with thick black rimmed glasses that have a little bit of wire holding them together instead of tape. My pocket protector is kinda frayed so I had to retire it & use a small pencil case I had from the 3rd grade.
